We hope this blog will provide a place for everyone interested in landscape development to find practical, straight forward information about creating and maintaining the garden of their dreams.
The Garden Continuum has been a successful landscape firm since 2000. As the company founder, I have been actively engaged in the gardening profession since 1986. There is no doubt that the time has come to reach beyond the confines of the drafting table and company walls and share our collective gardening wisdom with anyone who wants to succeed in their landscape.
If we've learned one thing, it's this: Lots of well-meaning people spend lots of time and money on improving their homes and gardens and FAIL. Very few of us have time to spare or money to burn in this economy.
SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE!
"Landscaping" may look EASY...especially if you watch DIY TV.
Truth is building a landscape and then caring for it for the long haul is HARD. Hard work that requires attention to three important phases:
- Planning & Design
- Land Preparation & Construction
- Plant Acclimation & Aftercare
SKIMP in any phase and you may FAIL with dead or dying soil, sad plants that won't thrive, or an unstable hardscape.
WASTED TIME AND MONEY!
